Exactly as described above. The header approach means that *all* static
definitions must be used by each user of that file. Otherwise you will
get "defined but not used" compiler warning.

And approach itself is considered (at least by me) as a hackish way to
achieve what usually should be done via C-file.

So, if maintainers are okay, I wouldn't have objections, but again
I do not think it's a correct approach.
